We are well into September. The schools are all back in full swing and the chore of packing lunch is once again challenging moms everywhere.
What to pack in school lunch boxes is one of my most asked questions. Parents are looking for any ideas or suggestions to add variety to that deli sandwich fall-back. My childhood lunch memories consist of a boiled ham sandwich on white bread with mayo. By lunch time the bread would be extra soft and smashed paper thin, guaranteed to stick to the roof of my mouth. I do not know if I refused to eat anything else or if this was the extent of my mother's brown-bagging creative vision. I do remember feeling lucky when I was able to eat someone else's fried bologna sandwich with barbeque sauce. It would feel like a present, wrapped in foil, still warm from the frying pan.
